Anyway, it's no surprise then, that I count as I quilt. Working on my Dream Big quilt, I soon discovered that it took 20 minutes to piece 4 rows, another 10 minutes to press the rows and pin them into pairs, and another 20 minutes to sew them all together. Aha! Basically 12.5 minutes PER row, times 26 rows, would mean about 5.5 hours to piece the center of the top. Thankfully, I'm a good 4 hours into this process and have 20 rows to show for my repeated and unnecessary calculations.
The design wall is almost empty, with only 6 rows left. . .
That would be 70 minutes to me.
